With the recent publication of her prayer journal, and growing anticipation regarding film adaptations of her work as well as her forthcoming authorized biography, interest in Flannery O’Connor and her fiction is at a peak. The prayer journal affirmed at last, even for those remaining skeptics, the profound importance O’Connor’s Catholic faith had to her fiction. As she herself said, “I write the way I do because I am a Catholic.” Holy Spirit Church’s Director of Adult Education, award-winning columnist for The Georgia Bulletin, and respected scholar and teacher of O’Connor’s work, Dr. David King, will lead a 3-part series on sacramental imagery in some of O’Connor’s best stories, kicking off Holy Spirit’s new John Paul II Faith and Culture Series, an ongoing schedule of talks and lectures from experts in the arts and culture. There is no charge for the talks, which will be held on Wednesday evenings on February 12th, 19th, & 26th, 7:00-8:30 at Holy Spirit, 4465 Northside Drive, Atlanta 30327, in McDonough Hall, Side B.
